So far, Chicago has sealed its third NFC North title in six seasons with an 11-4 record. A win over the Packers would bring eliminating their biggest threat to finish the 6-0 in the division. Sporting talented players such as Jay Cutler, who has netted a 104.2 QB rating and completed 60.7% of his passes for 1,042 yards, 11 TDs and 4 INTs over his last five games, and Matt Forte, who averages 5.7 yards per carry in the last five games and is 22 away from 1,000 yards for the first time since 2008, Chicago certainly has a shot at adding another victory to their record at Lambeau. If they continue to believe in themselves, this team is sure to go deep into the postseason. NFL spreads.
